GPS comes to Pebble Time smartwatches with Powerstrap Pal

Pebble’s plan to make its current generation of smartwatches even smarter is a genius one: The company includes a port for accessory makers to create straps that add all sort of functionality to the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel. Since Pebble announced that plan last spring, developers have created straps with built-in heart rate monitoring, wireless charging, and gesture control. But GPS has remained a requested but missing feature—until now.

Powerstrap just launched a Kickstarter for its Pal GPS smartstrap for the Pebble Time and Pebble Time Steel, which will let you track runs and store them on the sporty, sweat- and water-resistant strap (which comes in six colors) for up to 24 hours, no smartphone required. You then sync the GPS data with your phone, where you can view pace, speed, altitude, and a map of the route you ran. You can brag about your stats with easy social media sharing, too.
